Hemingway & Bartlett HB-104

Got a roll of this for free. All it says inside is "HB-104 NYLON SEWING THREAD" along with the companies NYC address.

It's pretty thick stuff. I'm wondering what the HB - 104 stands for and what size this thread is. GOOGLE got me no where.

It's possible that this is a Tex size, which would make it between size 92 and size 138, but I don't know for sure.

My advise to you and to anyone who gets thread with a machine or has it given to them is, and always will be, to throw it away and buy new thread. Why ruin an entire project by using suspect thread? For the price of a small spool of thread, it just isn't worth it.

Well, I tried it with an 18 needle on my 111w and it bunched. Once I switched to a 24, it worked fine. I'd swear I can hang two 45 lb wights from it - strong stuff.
